Using the Tefal OptiGrill is like having a professional grill chef at home. Meat is cooked to your personal preference each time, whether rare, medium or well-done – removing any worries about over or under-cooking.
Uniquely, a clear colour-changing LED display reveals how your steaks or chops are cooking, allowing you to see exactly when they are done. If the light is yellow, the steak is still rare, as it moves into orange the steak is medium, when the light turns red the meat is well done. Plus, the Tefal OptiGrill will beep at each stage of the cooking process to inform you that your meat is rare, medium or well done.
Not just for steaks, there are six automatic programmes with dedicated cooking cycles for different ingredients with burgers, chicken, bacon, sausage, meat, fish and a manual option all included.

The Breville VKJ318 can cope with up to 8 x 250ml cups (2L) without refilling and ensures that water is only dispensed at boiling point, making perfect hot drinks each time. What’s more, the smooth and continuous flow of water keeps splashing to a minimum. Thanks to variable dispense, you can choose from nine different cup sizes to fill. A manual stop button will also stop water flow mid-cycle.
